Application Instructions

Admission Requirements

Test Score Required: A satisfactory score on the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT). In rare instances the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) may be accepted in lieu of the GMAT.

Applicants with three or more years of extensive managerial work experience (earned in the U.S. or with a U.S. government entity) may request to have the GMAT requirement waived by the Program Advisor. This decision is made on a case-by-case basis; "extensive managerial experience" will typically mean a full-time supervisory or managerial position held for a significant period of time after completing the bachelor's degree as demonstrated with a resume.

Quantitative measures are integrated into an index that multiplies the applicant’s 60-hour GPA times 200 and adds the total GMAT score (60-hour GPA X 200) + GMAT = >1000. An index score of greater that 1000 is typical of a successful candidate. If the student’s 60-hour GPA is above 3.25 the GMAT may be waived

Additional requirements for applicants with bachelor’s degrees from foreign institutions include Proof of English Proficiency and an International Transcript Evaluation as outlined here.

GPA: 3.0 GPA (on 4.0 scale) on all previous academic coursework.

Letters of Recommendation: No

Resume/Curriculum Vitae: No

Admissions Essay: No

Deadlines: University deadlines apply.

Provisional Admission: Although a student may not have completed all baccalaureate work at the time of application, a provisional admission decision will be made on the strength of the student’s permanent record before the student can be enrolled as a graduate student in business.

Career Outlook: Widespread efforts to increase management efficiency have led some companies to ask industrial managers to assume greater responsibility. Knowledge of Lean Six Sigma can set you apart. For more, visit Occupational Outlook Handbook - Industrial Production Managers.

Salary Information: See Bureau of Labor Statistics for detailed salary information on these careers. Another great resource is O*Net.
